Abstract: Detecting the position and the level of joint impingement is often a key to computer-aided surgical plan to normalise joint kinematics. So far for ball-and-socket joint, most of the up-to-date impingement detection methods are not efficient or only consider a few collided points as the detection results. In this paper, we present a real-time impingement detection system with rapid geometry sampling and surface-to-surface distance measurement feature for joint motion simulation. This is an expanded version of a paper presented at the 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Medical Measurements and Applications, 9–10 May 2008, Ottawa, ON, Canada.
